Major Israeli newspaper calls Romney Netanyahu’s Sock Puppet
Actual Haaretz headline: In Jerusalem speech, it was Romney’s voice but Netanyahu’s words
Romney read his speech from two teleprompters that were placed opposite the stage, but compared to Obama, Romney seemed gray and uncharismatic. Even from this hand-picked, extremely friendly audience, he wasn’t able to extract thunderous applause.
The speech itself sounded as if it could have been written by Netanyahu’s bureau. So it’s no surprise that when the two met later for dinner, Netanyahu thanked him for his “support for Israel and Jerusalem.”
